Kacey Musgraves and Ruston Kelly issued a joint statement on July 3rd saying that they were divorcing after two years of marriage.
"With heavy but hopeful hearts we wanted to put our own thoughts into the air about what's happening, as these kind of announcement are always met with scrutiny and speculation and we want to stop that before it even starts." they said in the statement. "We believe that we were put into each other's lives for a divine reason and have both changed each other infinitely for the better. The love we have for each other goes far beyond the relationship we've shared as husband and wife. It's a soul connection that can never be erased. We've made this painful decision together - a healthy decision that comes after a very long period of trying the best we can. It simply just didn't work. Though we are parting ways in marriage, we will remain true friends for the rest of our lives. We hold no blame, anger, or contempt for each other and we ask for privacy and positive wishes for us both as we learn how to navigate this." They met in 2016 at the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville and married in October 2017.
